Samsung has announced the availability of their latest satellite DMB phone, the SCH-B200 / SPH-B2000. Samsung’s US division has released a press announcement on the Samsung SCH-B200. It also now appears on their North American website as it was only available on their Korean website since it’s unveiling back in April of this year. Could this mean a North American availability? or just extra exposure for Samsung?
With an attractive slide and rotate form factor, the B200 allows for a large screen, controls and keypad to be nicely fit in a compact design.
Users can rotate the LCD screen 90-degrees for landscape or standard view, much more practical for watching broadcasted video content. It comes standard with a 2-megapixel camera, 256MB TransFlash memory, TV output function, and wired or wireless mobile printing of your photos. Battery life is expected at about three hours of continuous DMB viewing thanks to it’s new energy efficient design.
Kitae Lee, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Network Business said, “Samsung plans to continue offering new DMB phones with cutting-edge features and innovative designs.”
No pricing or availability was announced for the Samsung SCH-B200 / SPH-B2000 at this time.
